MAC address

​Find Your Device MAC Address

In order to connect your games console to the Media network, you will first need to register your device MAC address

The MAC address has 12 characters - usually a combination of letters and numbers

When you have found the MAC address, write it down, and register your console


1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > System 

2. Select System Information 

3. The Mac address for both Wi-Fi & LAN will be Displayed on screen 


If you are able to reach the main menu on your Xbox, follow the steps below to locate the MAC address of your console 

1. If you are signed into your profile, navigate to My Games & Apps. **Skip this step if you are not signed into a profile 

2. Select Settings > Network 

3. Select Advanced Settings 

4. The MAC address for both Wireless and Wired will be displayed on the right-hand side of the screen

Please Note: If you are using your Xbox One for the first time, an internet connection is required to reach the settings menu where you will find the MAC address you need to register your device. The work around for this is to allow the Xbox to run through the system setup, let it fail, select “Fix It” and then it will attempt to diagnose the issue. When that fails, it will bring you to a screen prompting you to manually set up the connection, listing both the wireless and wired MAC address.
